Brazil: Agricultural Biotechnology Annual

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)

Brazil is the second largest producer of biotech crops in the world. The adoption rate of biotechnology in the upcoming 2017/2018 crop season (Oct. 2017 through Sept. 2018) is expected to reach an average of 81 percent for total corn, soybean and cotton planted area. The increase is mostly attributed to the greater use of biotech soybeans and corn and increased availability of subsidized credit for farmers, although at higher interest rates than last crop year. Post has also updated other sections, such as the intellectual property rights and list of events of the report to reflect new information from trade and government sources.
